The biggest bootleg mashup party in the world marks its 7-Year Itch Anniversary with a jam-packed evening celebrating the past seven years of mashup culture. Direct from England, Bootie is proud to present Go Home Productions
, aka Mark Vidler, one of the world's most legendary mashup producers. Since 2002, he's made countless mashups, including the landmark "Rapture Riders," The Doors vs. Blondie classic which went legit with a legally-sanctioned release. He's also officially mashed-up and remixed tracks for David Bowie, Alicia Keys, and Bob Dylan, among others, and was the producer of EMI UK's "Mashed" album in 2007, still the only legal mashup compilation released by a major label.
At 11 PM, Bootie's house band Smash-Up Derby
plays live their favorite mashups from each of the past seven years, while resident DJs Adrian & Mysterious D spin a mashup history lesson that you can dance to! Bootie's original performer, Princess Kennedy
, recreates our very first Midnight Mashup Show from seven years ago, while in the upstairs room, it's Electro-Bootie, with DJ MC2
spinning electro bootlegs, remixes, and covers, complete with their own lasers and lighting. Providing the eye candy on the go-go boxes will be John!John!'s Mutants
. We'll be giving out birthday cupcakes and milkshakes, and a couple samples of the brand-new Bootie T-shirts. And finally, we've got free Bootie 7-Year Anniversary CDs for the first 500 people!
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJs Adrian & Mysterious D, Bootie was the first club night in the United States dedicated solely to the burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup -- and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. Keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, Bootie mixes and matches every conceivable musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party where everyone feels welcome, providing the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation... and free mashup CDs, given away like candy!
